Meeting Description:

What can we learn from neuroimaging about pragmatics? Let's ask one of the leading neuropragmaticists. On May 13, the XPRAG Wine Gatherings is visiting Einat Shetreet at Tel Aviv University. Einat will give a talk on ''Scalar implicatures: Inferences from neuroimaging''. Everyone is cordially invited!

FMRI allows the detection of brain activations with a fairly good spatial resolution, and is used to determine cortical localization of cognitive processes. In this talk, I will present a set of fMRI experiments that show that we can use this technique not only for mapping linguistic functions to specific brain regions, but also to provide evidence that helps constrain linguistic theories regarding scalar implicatures.
